TANK, 19 November: To keep a check on the daily attendance of doctors and other staff, the administration of district headquarter hospital here installed biometric attendance system in the facility.

According to the medical superintendent of the hospital the data of all staff members including senior doctors and class IV employees has been put in the system and each individual has to mark his/her attendance by pressing thumb on it.  This is the first time that biometric system has been installed in a public sector health facility in the district.

The step has been warmly welcomed by the local people. Talking to TNN a local of the area said with the installation of the system the doctors and other staff had become very regular and now they had become performing duties regularly. “Before this system, doctors usually do not come to hospital regularly. They used to leave hospital before their due time due to which local people were suffering. Now they have been made bound to come and leave on time,” remarked another resident.
